    The Frying Finn!'s Note:

    This is a delicious dish that has evolved over the years since I have been making it. I use angel hair pasta and the finished product I am aiming for is a 'dry' pasta dish. That is, the pasta should be coated and flavoured by the sauce, but not swimming in it. It is a very economical dish that produces a luxurious tasting result!

    My Private Note

    1. 1
      Fry chopped onion, carrot, celery and garlic in ev olive oil until soft but not coloured. Add white wine and allow to completely cook away. Add tomatoes and simmer for at least an hour. Season with herbs of your choice and salt and pepper. Boil angel hair pasta in salted boiling water until done to your liking. Drain pasta.
    2. 2
      Now I combine the sauce, pasta and pink salmon in the following manner. I use this method because I want to produce a pasta that is only 'coated' in sauce, not 'swimming' in it. I place a saucepan over low heat and add alternate quantities of pasta and the tomato sauce and toss together until well combined. I only add enough sauce to the pasta to colour and lightly coat the pasta. When I am happy with the balance, I add the flaked salmon, tossing it through the pasta until it is all combined.
    3. 3
      Serve topped with parmesan or romano cheese and torn fresh basil leaves, and hot chilli (pepper) flakes if you like. Delicious!

      I wanted something different since it seemed I was getting into a cooking rut. I had canned salmon and decided to try this recipe. I must say, it is delicious. Since the objective of the original poster was for a creamy sauce, I decided to cook the sauce down and put it in the blender - creamy solved. I also used shiratake noodles instead of angel hair so the calorie count dropped considerably. This is a great way to use canned fish.

      Delicious and even pleased my fish-hating husband. I was careful to pick out all the dark skin, backbone and anything that looked mushy. I used a full small bottle of chardonnay (about 3/4 c.), high-quality diced tomatoes, a little dried oregano, half a bay leaf, pinch of sugar and a good, aged parmesan. I used about 2 tsp of ultra-gel to thicken up the liquid in the pan. It resulted in a non-wet, but nicely coated pasta. This is just a fantastic way to use a pantry stable, canned salmon. Made for Think Pink tag game.

      This is good, although I would probably not make it again as my husband is starting to grumble about his distaste for canned salmon, although he's good with canned tuna. I wanted to try it as I'm intrigued by canned salmon and haven't come across many recipes calling for it. I agree with my husband in that there's something we both don't like about the flavor and texture. Thanks, The Frying Finn! Made for Think Pink Tag Game in honor of breast cancer awareness.
